I have been working at Harvard University as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Actually it is an unpaid intern job, but experience is much more important than pay.

Cons

Interns are not easy to be promoted to be real staff due to fund limitation.

    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Fellow in Cambridge, MA

    I have been working at Harvard University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Bright colleagues from around the world, with usually cutting-edge science. Tons of good seminar talks throughout the year. Good core resources and expertise around to do what you need to do. If a staff member, Harvard Benefits are great.

    Cons

    If you get a special external postdoctoral fellowship award, be prepared for Harvard trying to milk you for what money they can get. You will also lose some benefits (e.g., retirement savings account options). Culture of "prove yourself" and collective-induced feelings of "am I good enough to be here" gets a bit tiresome after a while.
